On Sunday morning we were having a nice family breakfast at one of our favorite spots in town that my nine year old asked ” Why have you guys not have a special day together for so long” ?

I thought it was cute that she was so thoughtful but a bit embarrassed that we didn’t make it happen for a while. The long answer to Misa’s question is both sets of grandparents and close family members live very far away and we love to spend time with the kiddos while they are still young and think we are super cool. ( how will I take the blow when they will figure out that I am not in a few years) 🙂 Also we can rarely trust babysitters, lots of friends offer but come on the whole clan at once can be overwhelming, and there are a lot of other very important reasons that seem insignificant but holds true for us. Luckily our fitness club holds really nice parents night outs every month. We missed last month’s but plan to hop on that train this month.

Now on to the fashion connection; lace is HUGE this spring and summer. This is one trend I can always get behind as lace with its femininity, absolute girlies, and its strange ability to partner up easily with other styles ( leather jacket, lace dress, flat booties anyone?) makes my heart happy every time I lay my eyes on it. I plan to take my hubby on the town in a couple weeks and I intend to wear this super romantic dress exactly like how I styled here. Hope he likes it! 🙂

Here are some great lace lovelies I have found including my Free people dress with links below followed by my own version from my closet.

Spring Trends 2014 Lace


 From Theboxqueen’s Closet

Lace dress

The moment I saw this peach colored dress online I had to have it! It comes in really cute colors (check out the pink) and has the prettiest lace detailing. I like how the hemline is original and not straight and thought the dress would be a great multitasking piece for my closet as I will surely use it like I suggested above too; with my moto jackets, and flat booties. The peach color (sold out) is so romantic that I wanted to keep everything else neutral to highlight the pastel color.

By now most of you know my love for statement pieces and in all this neutral, romantic innocence I needed a little bit of naughtiness; enter my leopard clutch 🙂 In one of my Jewelmint mystery boxes I received the above rose bangle and I love it with this dress.

This gorgeous drop earrings are one of my most prized purchases from Baublebar as I was put on waiting list for it and waited about two months until I can order. I adore the mix of colors and shine on it.

Style Tip: HAVING your hair parted away from your face on one side will help highlight the beauty of your drop earrings.

High Heel SandalsThese high heels from Pour La Victoire ( this years fave here ) will be the finishing touch to my romantic date night outfit.

  • That is so sweet your nine year old noticed! Aww!
    Those shoes are great – Pour la Victoir is so great for both style and comfort!
    As far as lace – I love it! I think there was a time I felt like it was too old lady for me, but lately, I love anything and everything lace! I love pairing it with edgy pieces of casual pieces – something totally different than the ladylike feel that it has! It goes without saying that this dress is perfect on you! Enjoy your night out!
